Easy Money Casino Party!

A casino party is a fun and easy theme to celebrate a birthday, a graduation, a poker night, a Bunco theme, or just because! Just get your friends together, the entertainment is built right in. I’ll bet you all have a great time.
 
1. Send Your Casino Party Invitation
  • Personalize Your Party! Of course, you can use a great Personalized Casino Invitation.
  • A great way to make the invitation stand out from the rest is to include a few inexpensive poker chips in the envelope.

Choose some fun wording for your Casino Party Invitation:

  • In the game of life, Sally is turning 40! Let us deal you in...
  • Oh "Craps", Jim is turning 50! Roll on over for a night of games.
  • Bring your poker face and a lucky charm to our 3rd annual poker night!
  • You have been "dealt" an invitation to Kathleen's Surprise Birthday Party!
  • Ante up for a night at the poker table. Join us for night of food, friends and fun.
2. Let the games begin!
3. Decorate Your Home Vegas Style!
  • Make your guest feel like they are in a casino by putting up Slot Machine Scene Setters on the blank walls.
  • Dice Lights are perfect around doorways and over the buffet/bar. Mix them in with white lights to cover a larger area.
  • For a stunning (yet inexpensive) effect, hang Casino Dangles from your ceiling. Fun!
  • Use Casino Signs near the game areas to help people navigate your "casino".
4. Set Your Table with Casino Paper Goods
  • You don't want to serve a big meal at this party. Just circulate tasty appetizers and h'ordeuvres. Make sure you have some fun Casino Paper Goods to go with the food.
  • Cover any tables, the buffet and even the bar with green felt from your local fabric store, or use Blackjack Table Covers, they make unique tablecloths.
  • Set out munchies in snack bowls. I'm a Chex Mix gal myself, but pretzels and chips are great too.
  • Since everyone will be eating on the go, make silverware bundles by wrapping plastic utensils with a napkin. Tie the bundles off with colorful Dice Beads. You guests can wear them as a favor after they eat!

Serve easy finger foods that will keep everyone circulating and playing the games.
  • Swedish meatballs
  • Crap dip
  • Spinach and artichoke dip
  • Tomato bruschetta
  • Stuffed olives
  • Mini pizza bites
  • Shrimp cocktail
  • Fruit/Cheese Tray
5. Decorate the Bar and Light Up the Drinks

  • Wow your guests by serving drinks in LED Martini Glasses, they will be a hit at the party.
  • A good way to add a bit of festivity to the bar is to use a fun cocktail or beverage napkin along with a few creative drink garnishes. Try this fun Casino Platter to serve drinks on and a maraschino cherry in your martini.
  • Speaking of a cherry in your martini, serving a signature drink instead of a full bar is a great way to keep your alcohol costs down. We recommend the classic Casino Cocktail:
    • You need 2 oz. gin, 2/3 teaspoon, maraschino liqueur, 2/3 teaspoon lemon juice, 2 dashes orange bitters, and a maraschino cherry for garnish.
    • Fill cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add ingredients. Stir until thoroughly chilled. Strain into martini glass, garnish with maraschino cherry.
6. Hand Out Favors to Say "Thanks for coming!"
Makes one fun Casino Theme Party!
